Ramon Laureano, Athletics

Laureano made his major league debut in early August of last year and produced from the get-go. In 48 games, the 24-year-old went on to bat .288 with five homers, 12 doubles, and seven stolen bases. To nitpick, he did strike out in 28.4 percent of his plate appearances. He was an excellent hitter in his 66 games at Triple-A last year as well and hit 14 home runs there.
